Security Camera Effectiveness

Unfortunately, security cameras are a necessity. Reality has shown that we should protect ourselves – constantly check our surroundings and protect ourselves. This could be a need that stems from over stress, or a need dictated by reality. You often hear on the news about an attendant who abused an old person under his or her care, about a jewelry store burgled in the middle of the night with no witnesses, or about property that was vandalized. The common denominator of all of these incidents is this: a security camera would have made it possible to locate the offenders, to confirm concerns and even to deter the potential perpetrators.

Deterrence

Security cameras do not just deliver the facts in black and white, provide peace of mind and constitute an item in your home insurance policy. They also possess a significant potential as a deterrent. When a burglar arrives at his intended scene and notices a security camera, he may back away as he knows full well that it would be unwise to operate in plain sight. Consequently, a trend has evolved where people try to save costs and time, so they just purchase a camera and install it without even learning how to operate it, as they are content with the knowledge that they did something for deterrence.

The Law

You should be aware of the fact that even if it is your home, it does not mean you can install security cameras just anywhere around the house. For example, if you have a grandparent living with you who has an attendant, you cannot install a camera in the attendant’s room – only where he or she treats the grandparent, as otherwise it would be a serious breach of the attendant’s privacy, which amounts to an offense. However, if the attendant usually washes the grandparent in the bathroom, you may install a camera there as it is intended to investigate a suspicion of abuse.

Camera Quality

Not every camera produces the same image quality, so the user should specify the requirements the camera will be required to meet in advance. For example, will the camera be required to pick up and provide a sharp image of small details from a long distance (for example, vehicle license plates), or will it be satisfactory for it to just pick up figures? Most of the cameras on the market offer a standard resolution of 640×480 in black and white, but there are also HD (High Definition) quality security cameras that offer sharper images in color. At the same time, the user should take into consideration the fact that a higher-quality camera requires a more elaborate (and costlier) infrastructure, that it costs more and that it requires a larger memory storage capacity.
